More from my Coastal Norway series, another primitive shelter along the shore. This is Kalvøya on the rocky coastline of western Norway, far enough offshore to properly be in the Norwegian Sea. We sailed in a small tug-type vessel made in Poland ,leaving from the island of Linesøya where the Fjær-Grip family has a hytta (cottage) for a day of fishing and sightseeing. Norwegians love the out-of-doors and many of the hytta are not only very small but primitive. They're generally kept in excellent repair, left ready to be used when their owners and families wish to escape city or farm life to experience life more as their ancestors did. You can see how isolated they tend to be and words that came to mind as I photographed include Privacy and Alone Away. This one surely evokes a best kind of Solitude so that's what it's called. Privacy and Alone Away can also be found in the Coastal Norway series
Norwegians pride themselves on their Viking roots. Translated to modern life they brave the wilderness and embrace the challenge. An urban professional will often have a small place in the woods or off-shore, where they live by the rules of the wild or play at the game of it. Their hytta are solitary, private, colorful, alone! As a photographer I feel a bit like an intruder, a voyeur sitting off-shore in a small coastal tug, spying on their solitude. Saturated colors are typical of the Norwegian hytta, no intensification required. No overcast or clouds and later morning makes a brighter day and lighter mood in this one, where the Smalls Gallery shows this same scene with an early sky of light clouds and pink from the rising sun.
